    easily a living wage

    Please set me clear on the following in red.

    Although a meaningful proportion of the 'Foever Yours' sales went to charity, that is easily a living wage. Day can't disclose his YouTube revenue ... but says that music sales make up 75% of his income. 'It was 50/50 before "Foever Yours", but now it is more in favour of music sales.'

    Does the first sentence mean "the money that went to charity is as little as a living wage?" And I think the second one means "Day now earns more money through music sales," but I'm not sure.

    Thank you.

    1 No- I think it means that after giving some to charity, the person still was earning more than enough to live on.
    2 Yes.
